Road to the City
Important : If you completed the Knight vs Ninja sidequest, remember to train your physical characters in the Knight or Ninja job to learn the Two-Handed or Dual Wield support ability. The enemies from here on are tougher and the attack boost will come in mighty handy.
Enemy Tips : There's no escaping the imperials. The Sniper Guard uses Snipe to try and drop a character to 1 HP. Meanwhile the Medic Guard can use Honeypot to attempt to charm one and Ration to heal all HP. Finally the Katana Guard counters physical hits with Thorny Rose.
They've brought along better robots as well. The Iron Man (IV) A-Type uses Triple Burst to fire three rounds on one character, the B-Type uses Disinformation to confuse the party and the E-Type uses Lightning Blast to strike the party. As usual, fry their circuits with lightning.
If you landed on Florem's eastern shore as we advised, head west across the nearby bridge, then north-west towards the next bridge. After that, the city of Florem is just ahead. Or if you came from the western shore, travel in an easterly direction, making sure to follow the bridges.
Land of Radiant Flowers
It's a new town: you should know what to do. First, make your way to the east side of the central flower display to find a Remedy stuck in the fence. Next, head north and check the area behind the lamp post next to the Trader for a Vanille slice.
For the final hidden item, go left towards the path to the next area. Walk towards the steps ahead while hugging the left-most wall to discover some Catnip halfway between the first set of steps and the plaza below. Mission complete!
Shopping-wise, you'll obviously want better weapons and armour, but also consider investing in an Earthing Rod and Peace Ring accessory for each party member. In addition, be sure to purchase the Benediction, Resurrect and Elemental Mirror scrolls.
Once you've done everything here, proceed to the next area to the north. After hearing about the new and improved Sacred Flower Festival, continue on until you reach the junction. Here, go right a few paces and inspect the bottom of the purple structure for a Phoenix Down .
To locate the next hidden item, carry on north onto the main stage and search around the bottom-left corner for a Catch Me Conch . Finally, return to the junction and head east towards the Matriarch's home. Inside, run up to the top-left corner to retrieve some Balsam .
Before your item pouch starts to burst, speak to the Matriarch sitting in the middle of the room. In order to protect the final crystal from the kaiser, the Matriarch asks our heroes to escort Sylvie, Florem's vestaling, to the Temple of Water.
